Heading off shortly, for my first day of WORK...

April 1st, 2006 (05:23 pm)

I cannot tell you how excited I am. I giggled every few minutes yesterday, whenever
I thought about it. Me and Bear and a couple of his buddies went down to Congress
to watch the Lonestar Hot-rod show strike up the festivities of the weekend--how cool
we felt kicking back in HIs Classic old patina'd GMC truck with our cooler of iced
Lonstars, watching the parade.

Waving at the cars, and telling stories.
Folks from as close as San Antonio and as far away as Ontario--leaning in and chatting
about custom work that soared over my head...

BOYS AND CARS AND BIKES! *Whoooooo-Hoooo!*

More pompadours, cufffed Levi's and Ink than you could shake a wrench at!

And all the while, I was grinning, enjoying myself completely. No cloud of doom
looming in the back of my mind. I was allowed to be here and enjoy my Friends and
my Town...and Myself. I had a job.

Surreal. Bliss. Feet kicked up on tires in the back of a truck, on South Congress just
up from the Continental Club--Cop car parked in front of us with lights flashing, to slow
everybody down--but no hassles, no bad energy. Lonestar beer flowing, laughing faces
and the thick thick smell of ancient exhaust...

DAmn, it feels good to be a Ginger....

Ciao, my dear dear Familia--I gotta go to work!
